The New Bentayga V8
Breathtakingly reimagined with a commanding new design, empowering performance and a suite of innovative technologies, the new Bentayga is a luxury SUV made to excel in all environments. Its powerful and dynamic driving experience is enhanced further by a stunningly crafted interior which inspires exploration for drivers and passengers alike.
A distinctive exterior
The exterior of the new Bentayga V8 possesses a commanding, dynamic presence. A wider matrix grille dominates the front design, and this is complemented by highly sculpted body details – creating an assertive impression that hints at the new Bentayga V8’s powerful performance credentials. Elliptical headlamps with an intricate ‘crystal cut’ effect add a distinguished touch.
The rear design of the new Bentayga has also dramatically evolved. New tail lamps include a unique 3D jewelled appearance and complete a wider, cleaner tailgate, while oval split exhaust tailpipes, set within the rear bumper, complete the distinctive look.
A welcoming interior
The interior of the new Bentayga V8 is a celebration of Bentley’s revered craftsmanship, enhancing every journey with luxurious levels of comfort and technological innovation.
A state-of-the-art, high-resolution 10.9” touchscreen and a new digital driver’s information panel have been beautifully integrated into the cockpit – both modern touches that complement the stunningly crafted new steering wheel, door and seat designs.
The new Bentayga V8 offers a driving experience that is more like that of a grand tourer than an SUV – accompanied, of course, by the unmistakable rumble of a Bentley V8 engine.
Its exhilarating performance and handling can be enhanced further by the innovative Bentley Dynamic Ride active roll control system, which works to minimise body roll when entering corners and to improve grip when traversing off-road surfaces. The result is a truly remarkable level of comfort and control.
Capable of reaching 0 to 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds (0 to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds), this luxury SUV is able to achieve a breathtaking top speed of 180 mph (290 km/h). Phenomenal torque is present at low engine speeds with ample reserves of power, reaching a maximum of 770 Nm at an engine speed of under 2,000 rpm.
The new Bentayga’s phenomenal performance is remarkably matched with engine efficiency. It employs technologies such as start-stop and variable displacement, which shuts off four of the eight cylinders when not required, resulting in a highly practical range of 455 miles or 733 km (NEDC).
Advanced & intuitive technology
The new Bentayga V8 inspires confidence and a sense of security on every drive with the very latest in cutting-edge technology. A brand-new infotainment system, featuring crystal-clear screens, enhances all journeys and is accompanied by the inclusion of wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
For those in the rear of the cabin, a new Touch Screen Remote allows them to adapt the environment to their needs, offering control of the panoramic roof blind and mood lighting settings for the first time.
Meanwhile, an embedded SIM makes access to in-car features much simpler, providing a connection with the outside world so that you can enjoy online radio and music services, and the functionality of the latest map updates and enhanced Traffic Sign Recognition.
The My Bentley app provides access to a full suite of innovative services that enhance your day-to-day lifestyle by creating a safer, smarter and more convenient driving experience with tools such as the remote car finder, remote vehicle locking and unlocking.
The new Bentayga First Edition celebrates the SUV’s bold, distinctive design – and only a limited number of models will be available from launch.
Exclusive features include First Edition badging, appearing on both the exterior and interior of the car, unique contrast stitching on the diamond quilting, and the option of having either First Edition or the Bentley Wings embroidered onto the seats.
Additionally, a selection of the most desirable options can be found on this limited edition as standard. These include the pioneering active roll control system, Bentley Dynamic Ride, the powerful and immersive Naim for Bentley audio system, and the Touring Specification, which brings together a range of technologies to enhance long range, high speed journeys. The Front Seat Comfort Specification is also included, which elevates the already impressively comfortable seating in the new Bentayga.
Personalised by you
At Bentley Melbourne, we can help you create a car that’s unique to you from the almost limitless combinations of options available. You can make your choice from the seven exterior paints available as standard, or you can explore the extensive range of optional colours, such as the new Patina, a luxurious, mid-tone beige, and Viridian, a rich, dark shade of spring green.
The Blackline Specification dramatically changes the character of the car, featuring all-black brightware that gives an intense, purposeful look.
Alternatively, the impressive Black Specification takes this a step further with carbon fibre detailing, black 22” 5-spoke wheels and black exhaust tailpipes.
Crown Cut Walnut is available as the new standard veneer, with a further seven options available, while decorative contrast stitching, embroidered emblems and micro piping elevate your interior options further. Finally, a total of 15 hide colours and five different colour splits ensure that no two new Bentayga interiors will ever be the same.
